Two weeks after his 18th birthday, everything changes for Evan Nash. When he injures his head after being run down on his bicycle, he begins having strange, harrowing visions whenever he tries to sleep. He turns to psychiatrist Shannon Mayer for help. Mayer has troubles of her own: her daughter has been kidnapped, and she's desperate for answers. Though she's at first skeptical of Evan's accounts, it quickly becomes clear that his mysterious ailment may be the key to finding her child. Soon Evan's visions prove essential to the case but at a terrible cost. Evan and Shannon face an agonizing decision: Should he risk himself to save the girl?

Avid book lover and listener. Nuff said for this purpose.
I can't help myself, I have to give it 4 stars...Grumley bears watching, he's going to write great stuff. In fact if you've read Breakthrough and the 2nd in that series Leap, you know he already has, and I believe he's only going to get better....
No, this book isn't as good as those and it's short, but I still enjoyed it. He has a knack for making you like his characters.
If you haven't tried anything by him yet, get to it. It's going to be an amazing journey! Get your original copies and keep them, you might be glad you did in a few years...
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I'm currently listening to Leap by Michael C Grumley. I did not write a review of Through the Fog when I read it last year. In this novel psychiatrist Shannon Mayor asks for help finding her kidnapped daughter from her patient Evan Nash who is seeing her to try to cope with disturbing visions he is having after being run down on his bicycle. It is an excellent suspense story.
This story has great potential. I like the theme of this story "remote viewing" but it is too short to be adequately developed. This was a recent audible daily deal which I took advantage of and glad that I did. It was enjoyable but characters and storyline is underdeveloped.
As described in the publisher's review, this story is about a boy who can "see" remotely people, places and things when he sleeps. This story has great potential to be developed into an entertaining read.
Overall, it's not worth a credit but ok for a 2.95 purchase.
To short, but otherwise enjoyable. certainly not what I was expecting. Narrator did a good job. Apparently this will be a series, I look forward to reading the continuing story.
I'm in my 18th year teaching Spanish and English Literature and Composition. I love to travel and learn about different cultures! I❤Audible!
Warning! I do not discuss what exactly happens at the end of the book, but reading this review may give you a slight idea...
I was originally drawn to this book because it was only ~5hours. I wanted to listen to one of this length since all I have ever listened to were long or really short. It was the perfect length!
The storyline moved along well and there were not too many characters to keep track of. I enjoyed the story, itself. It was engaging and kept my interest throughout the entire reading. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I thought the ending...as in the last sentence...was going to be a little stronger. However, if there was a book #2, I think I would have given the ending 5-stars because it would give me something to look forward to.
I enjoyed listening to the narrator! Her voice was easy to listen to, and she was not boring. She did different voices for different characters. I would listen to other books she has narrated.
